He's got a lot of options to pick from this week with Nunez also added to the squad. Scary to think we have five or six still injured.

Even more scary to think he will probably bring back Naylor after only resting him for Donny.(pretty clear Bessone was dropped). Good guessing game for the side this week.

Grayson, please, please, please leave Naylor out of the side.
